The Mexican U-22 Soccer Team

Year: 2011

In June of 2011, during the Copa America tournament, the Mexican national soccer team took a major hit when it was revealed that eight members of their squad had brought prostitutes to their rooms at a hotel in Quito, Ecuador. These guys basically brought the punishment onto themselves, too. After reporting that some iPads and iPhones had been stolen from them, security tapes showed the women entering the players' rooms, thereby implicating all the guilty parties. The players—a bunch that included Jonathan dos Santos, Javier Cortes and Marco Fabian—were all dismissed from the team for the remainder of the tournament, and Mexico went on to lose every one of their group stage matches.
